Website Counting Down Gangnam Style’s Billionth Hit Turned Into A Porn Site When It Happened
Many fans of youtube sensation “Gangnam Style” were counting down to the video reaching an incredible one billion views using the site BillionCountdown.com.
A lot of these fans were probably quite surprised, however, by what happened on the website once the video indeed reached one billion views.
At the exact moment “Gangnam Style” acquired its one billionth view, BillionCount.com immediately converted into a porn site known as ”Xpress Cougar Dating Club.” Anyone visiting BillionCount.com was redirected to what claims to be the “#1 Sex and Dating Site.”
The site is registered to a Eugene Hartley of Los Angeles, who explained the redirection by saying “When it was getting closer to 1 billion views I figured I had to do something with it but wasn’t really sure what.
It was either let the site die off, or try to get some money through promoting dating sites.”
I doubt Hartley made as much money as he intended, but one thing’s for sure: BillionCount.com most definitely went out with a bang!
